HistoryEdit

Radnički Novi Sad (1970–2009)Edit

The club was formed in 1970 as KK Radnički from Novi Sad. The club moved to the first Serbian League in 2007 and played in that competition in their last two seasons (2007–08 and 2008–09). During the 2008–09 season, guard Zlatko Bolić led the league with 22.8 points per game.

In 2009, Radnički was relocated to Belgrade and changed its name to KK Radnički Basket[5] to distinguish it from well-known Radnički Belgrade. Two years later, the club changed its name to KK Radnički FMP.[1]

FMP (2013–present)Edit

In the 2016–17 season, FMP made a debut in the ABA League and finished in 9th place in the end of the season. Power forward Jonah Bolden was awarded the ABA League Top Prospect title after averaging 12.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in his rookie season.[6]

In December 2020, the club became a shareholder of the Adriatic Basketball Association, following a transfer of shares from Metalac Valjevo.[7]
